I've been hoarding various sample packs for years, and I have quite a huge folder now. I come from MacOS and I really liked how in default file manager you can select any file (not only audio), press space, and preview comes up almost instantly, press space again, and you are back dealing with files. This really helped to find the right samples and transfer them to project folder.
So.. Are there any dedicated sample library managers? Maybe some plugins for file managers that help to get sound previews? I'm pretty open to new flows of dealing with samples Right now I use default file manager on PopOS (I guess it's Nautilus) and default audio player, and switching between them doesn't feel quite clumsy.
Update: Thanks for recommendations. I tried building Samplecat and Samplehive, but didn't succeed. But I found a plugin for nautilus that makes it work as QuickView on MacOS (nautilus-sushi). It doesn't help with library management, but it will work for me for now. I guess I'll revisit Samplecat and SampleHive later
